Questions and issues regarding data protection crop up regularly in the context of integrating external service providers. Data protection regulations must be taken into consideration during the development of the sourcing strategy and in the planning phase. This is easier said than done, since data protection laws are currently in the process of changing dramatically. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into full effect on 25 May 2018, and will have significant influence on all service contracts.
The “Basics” workshop introduces you to the legal foundations of the GDPR. Besides the general introduction, it focuses on the consequences of the GDPR for sourcing. Based on concrete information on your sourcing project provided by you, the Cross-Check conducts an initial legal assessment in regard to the provisions of the GDPR. In the course of the Legal Implementation, you will receive support for your strategic planning as well as for the design and/or implementation of your sourcing strategy in relation to the General Data Protection Regulation.
